When you’re dealing with a new autism diagnosis or starting to suspect your child might have autism, you want information — and fast. As a caregiver for a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), you might be feeling like you need to learn a whole new language. Figuring out how to navigate the steps ahead may feel daunting.
We want to help. Blank Children’s Developmental Center and Stride Autism Centers have partnered together to provide free workshops for caregivers of children with autism. And our first one is coming up on March 22 at 5:30 pm, delivering an “Orientation to Autism Diagnosis and Treatment.”
What you’ll learn
At this orientation-focused session, we aim to help you map out the ground ahead. We’ll be discussing:
- Navigating the autism diagnostic assessments
- The post-diagnosis applied behavioral analysis (ABA) therapy assessment and treatment process
- Strategies to implement at home while on a waitlist
In other words, this session is tailored to the earliest days of getting your child diagnosed with autism. It helps you learn what to expect and how to best support your child through it.
How to join the first workshop
Good news: we’re offering these educational events completely free of charge. We believe it’s important to empower the caregivers of children with autism with the information they need.
